Glass etched cutting boards

I etched some glass cutting boards for some Christmas gifts.  The ladies loved them!!   Etching using my new blasting cabinet is so much FUN!!

M split letter monogram tile

Another split letter tile that was a request.  Those tiles are so fun to make!  :) 

Camp Harmony Fall 2013 Scrap Retreat

I went to a fall scrap retreat in November 2013 for a weekend.  We have such a great time and I get so much done.  This year I worked on our vacation scrapbook(s).  I didn't get it all done but got a huge amount done.  Also the crop leader as each group to come up for a group name and design a 12 x 12 layout.  We named our group of ladies THE SCRAPINATORS!  Although we didn't win by one vote, we enjoyed doing it!! 

Etched Snoopy Glasses

I recently purchased a sand blasing cabinet and wanted to try it out.  I etched four glasses (forgot to take a picture of the fourth one).  I love how they turned out!  What an easy thing to do!!   I've been etching up ma ny Christmas gifts!! 


Appreciation Card

This was a quick card I made for a couple to show how I appreciated what they did for us.  They sure helped us out.   The card is embossed with a simple ribbon.  I used die cuts to cut the two tags and I layed them. 

Laundry today..or Naked Tomorrow Vinly

I jazzed up my washer and dryer with :  Laundry Today...or Naked tomorrow!  It sure makes sense and laundry more fun!  wink wink :)

Drop down desk vinyl

Here is a drop down desk that I added some vinyl, too.  From last years vacation I fell in love with the Indian signs I saw so decided to add them to the desk.  It really accents my black and white Scrap Haven.

Cereal Box Vinyl on Tuperware Containers

Some vinyl I added to our Tuperware Cereal Boxes.  We always have Honey Nut and regular cheerios then one other kind which is usually a variety so I labeled the extra container Cereality for cereal plus variety. 

Snowman made from toilet paper rolls

What a cute way to store extra rolls of toilet paper for your guest to have easy assess to.  The hat and scarf was made from some lelfover flannel I had previously made a Halloween costume out of for my son.   The face of the snowman is made from scraps of paper and glued on. 

Etched Glass Containter and Memory Tile

My girlfriend's husband unexpectantly passed away so I made her this memory tile.  I etched her a container for "Tear Soup" and gave her soup and the book, Tear Soup by  Pat Schwiebert and Chuck DeKlyen.   This book is a must read for those who are grieving! 

Snowmen Hershey bar favors

These are a little thank you for a great bunch of ladies who invited me to spend a week with them in February crafting away.  Most of those ladies sew but I'll be crafting with paper that week.  Just wanted to give them a little something for their generousity.  :)  You can buy the snowman face from Laurie Furnel blog.

Baby Subway Art

A baby shower gift I did for a friend's baby.  It is printed on blue canvas using a darker blue ink.  The proud parents loved it.

Gun Vinyl

Vinyl added to my son't girlfriends gun.

Etched Moose Wine Glasses

I etched these wine glasses for a couple who lent us their wet saw so we could do our black splash in our kitchen.  We really appreciate them lending it to us.  This was the second time they let us borrow it. Glasses with a bottle of wine made them happy.  :)   

Washi Tape Christmas Tree

Here is a little Christmas tree that is in my Craft Haven.  It is simply decorated with some rolls of washi tape.
